Best Mom(s) in the World

[Edited to add: I originally posted these cards on Friday, May 10, right before Mother's Day when they were nice and timely--but there was no Friends With Flair that day!! So, I'm linking them up to this week's Unity linky party a week later instead, knowing full well that Mother's Day has already passed. I still wanted to share them because I just looooooooooove these Unity stamps, so I'm very, very sorry about that "stale" subject matter! Please forgive me!]

I made a couple of Mother's Day cards to mail to a few faraway friends this week, nothing too fancy--just quick, easy, and colorful.

Inside I wrote "Happy Mother's Day to one of my favorite moms!"

Some Road Washi Tape was the perfect accent for these cards!

I just LOVE the signs and fun motifs in Unity Stamp Co.'s Retro Road Trip stamp set! Doesn't that Best Mom sign remind you of a vintage Holiday Inn sign?


Or maybe the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign?


I know, maybe a bit tacky and not for everyone. But one of my card recipients shares my passion for all things road-trippy (and the other at least gets it!!), so I think these will do the trick. :)

It's been sooooooooooooooo very long since I've been able to play with some of my beloved Unity stamps. I'm so happy to be linking up with today's Unity Friends With Flair hop! (Hi, everybody!!)

I hope that you have a fabulous weekend celebrating all of the special moms in your life.
Cheers!
Emily
